The three evening news anchors, CBS’ Katie Couric, ABC’s Charlie Gibson and NBC’s Brian Williams, will be back tonight broadcasting from St. Paul.

One person not returning from his Hurricane Gustav coverage location will be MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann. Olbermann led coverage last night from New York, and will now co-anchor prime time convention coverage from MSNBC HQ with Chris Matthews at the RNC.

An MSNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser, “Since the next hurricane may hit on Thursday night, Keith will remain in New York. But, he’ll co-anchor with Chris who will be on our Rice Park set.”
